Thompson Region Honour the Caregiver Award deadline Feb. 7

Thompson region “Honour the Caregiver” Award for caregivers who go above and beyond

In honour of January as Alzheimer’s month The Medical Arts Health Research Group is pleased to announce a Thompson region “Honour the Caregiver” Award for caregivers who go above and beyond.

Today, more than 500,000 Canadians have been diagnosed with Dementia and over 1 million Canadians are caregivers for these family members.

The Honour the Caregiver Award recognizes one incredible caregiver in the Thompson region who selflessly loves to help others.

The award winner will receive more than a heartfelt “Thank You”; there is a special gift awaiting this deserving caregiver. We think it’s the least we can do for all they do.

For details on how to share your favourite caregiver story please go to HealthResearchca.org.

Deadline for story entries is Feb. 7, 2016.
